What could be sweeter than a whimsical spring card suitable for so many occasions? It’s time to play at Festive Friday!
This week we are celebrating the First Day of Spring. At Festive Friday, your goal is to use three or more items from the inspiration list on your project. I selected pastel colors, stitching, cute animals, and rain/umbrellas from the Inspo List in creating today’s card. I hope you will join us in our challenge this week. I can’t wait to see what YOU create!
Colors of the Day
The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips
One of the products that is part of the Sale-A-Bration Second Release is the awesome So Very Vellum Specialty Designer Series Paper. I thought it would be perfect for creating today’s spring card. I used the Purple Posy color, although it comes in Pool Party and Soft Sea Foam colors, too. I LOVE the fact that it adds instant texture without having to use an embossing folder. It’s a time saver, especially when time is a limited resource. Yep…those pesky puppies will be 4 weeks old on Monday and they are still taking up all my time. I’ll add some pictures of the kids later in the post. They are definitely at that messy stage!
I paper pieced our little duck’s rain gear using Purple Posy gingham paper. You might recognize her from the Fable Friends stamp set. After doing some fussy cutting, I placed her on Whisper White and Purple Posy stitched panels which were die cut using the Stitched So Sweetly dies. I highly recommend these dies. They can be purchased separately or as part of the So Sentimental bundle. The So Sentimental stamp set is a versatile one which is on it’s way to becoming one of my “go-to” sets. Clear epoxy droplets and rhinestones were added to the umbrella for a bit of bling!
